Raven House Sue Coleman Art Card
The Haida people built two different types of houses, which differ mainly in the type of construction. Raven house is the second type of house constructed by the Haida people and the main difference is the heavy gables that carry he weight of six longitudinal rafters. The elaborate joinery in house 2, including mortice-and-tenon joints, is similar to fittings seen on board the European ships. Even the sheeting is integrated into the frame by joinery. There are fewer types of houses and they were mainly in southern villages.
